2010-2011 Weddings and Questions You Should Ask a Wedding Photographer

I have two June weddings and a July wedding booked for 2011. Yippee!  It’s exciting to have clients in Arkansas and Oklahoma who love my work and recognize the fact that I’m booking popular dates rather quickly.

After checking out some “professional” photos of weddings this last year on people’s social networking sites and their prints, I’m taken aback by what people consider good photography. Maybe I’m too critical because I know what “good” photos are supposed to look like, or maybe people are just trying to be polite, but if you’re shopping around for a wedding photographer I’m offering you some MORE tips to make your decision easier. You may also check out my previous posts about Choosing a Wedding Photographer Wisely and What I Think Makes a Good Photographer.

Bridal Extravaganza 2010!

Bridal Extravaganza is Sunday, the 31st of January, from 1:00-4:00. Brides get in FREE.

It’s being held at Kay Rogers Park this year due to the overwhelming crowds the last few years. The ladies at Unforgettables Wedding and Party Rentals always try to bring in the most local vendors of any bridal show, so you’ll be able to see local talent not only in photographers, but cakes, catering, wedding attire, DJs, venues….There will be BIG giveaways and fashion shows.

Lauren & Josh

Lauren and Josh are a fun-loving couple. I had a great time with them yesterday. Here are a few previews of coming attractions.

Secret Proposal Photos

About a month ago I did secret proposal photos for Matt. He called me and asked if I would take photos as he proposed to his girlfriend, Rachel. He wanted a book made from the photos and was going to surprise her a second time with the gift of the book. I have permission to share some of those photos here!

Congratulations Matt and Rachel!
